Cons and Con Men
This show was all about how to avoid cons. Though the methods used by con men have certainly changed, the message is a good one: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Do your due diligence and research before you put any money into any business deal. And beware anyone pressuring you to make decisions before you can complete your research.
Sound advice even for today.
